maintains that marriage is between a man and a woman 17 years ago, he signed that into law. he now opposes the defense of marriage act and thinks that gays should be allowed to get married just as any other american should be allowed to get married. so there's a generational gap, if you will. and i think that politically speaking, a lot of republicans are beginning to say to themselves, you know what, since their stance opposing gay marriage is not necessarily popular with younger americans, they've got to see the handwriting on the wall, if you will. but it's significant, very significant with senator portman. he does this on the eve of the oral arguments that will be made before the u.s. supreme court on the defense of marriage act on gay marriage. that we expect a decision by the nine justices before the end of june. look, these justices, while they try to just look at the law, they're also impacted by public opinion, i think it's fair to say. so his decision to express the support for gay marriage i think is significant. >> and we're within two weeks of those oral arguments, too. wolf,

i see this issue. first off, starbucks is in compliance with the law that he is proposing. and secondarily, our business is really based on customization. and that customization is one of the reasons why we've been successful because people are able to customize their own beverage. i think americans and adults are old enough and mature enough to make their own decisions with regard to the customerization. we will comply with the law one way or the other. but the way the law was proposed, it did not cover what we do. most of our drinks are with milk, not with sugar. >> with milk, not with sugar. all right, let me ask you about that. there was a study, 180,000 obesity deaths in america, i'm sorry, worldwide, 22,000 in the united states can be linked to sugary drinks. that is a stunning number. so we looked at starbucks and i have to admit, there are drinks at starbucks i love but it means foregoing a meal. 57 570 calories, 80 grams of sugar. so coke is getting slaughtered. but don't you feel that you kind of have a problem, too? >> that particular beverage that you just talk

they did to law enforcement. he was telling priests not to come back to los angeles because they might be then subjected to lawsuits or subjected to law enforcement. you are saying you believe most cardinals, most people in leadership positions were counseling priests the same thing? >> i think when cardinal mahoney spoke of his behavior in the '80s and he was sincere, he said he did not know how to deal with pedophiles and didn't know how to deal with the priests. most issues he spoke of in public, most have not been confronted with and have not been told you deal with the issues you covered up. in my work in the media, 11 years i worked in roman catholic work, throughout latin america, most bishops and cardinals have participated in the behavior we are saying he was responsible for. i think it's unfair to pinpoint him because this is something the entire church has participated in, especially members of the hierarchy who did not know how to deal with it. >> right now, here in rome, everybody is talking about cardinal o'malley who went in after cardinal law, who did a miserable job, c

is that? >> there is an aggravating factor alleged in the case. you have to do it by law if you are seeking death in a case. the aggravating factor in the case is cruelty. it occurred in a particularly cruel manner and cruelty is defined as physical and mental anguish. that it was a drawn out death that he knew he was going to die. it's probably fair to argue based on the evidence in this case. there was a hearing a long time ago about this. and the order of the fayle tall wounds was reversed from what we heard. a judge determined it was cruel, but thinking the shot in the head was cruel but the defense said that's not the way the testimony came in at trial. we believe it was false testimony that the aggravating factor is based on that got us to the trial level. and this is not a death penalty case because it was not physical or mental anguish. that she intended to shoot him first. >> ago her story is based on on shot him i don't remember anything else. i don't remember all that stabbing that i must have -- her whole story goes out the window if what he says is right. >> that's

of trouble with the law and in trouble with the law. his father stood up and said i feel responsible for this and i feel i wasn't there for my son. he approached him, he hugged him and whispered in his ear and ma'lik's attorney said i never heard his father say, i love you. an incredibly emotional day. these two juveniles being carried out and they will be committed today, candy. >> poppy harlow in steubenville, ohio. i want to bring in paul callan. you know, paul, a 16-year-old now just sobbing in court, regardless of what big football players they are, still sound like 16 year olds. the other one 17. a 16-year-old victim. the thing is, when you listen to it and you realize that they could stay until they're 21, they are going to get credit for time served. what is the lasting effect, though, on two young men being found guilty in juvenile court of rape, essentially? >> well, you know, candy, we've seen here a courtroom drenched in tears and tragedy and, you know, poppy's description, i think, you know, sums it all up. but across america scenes like this happen all the time. as a pr

sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> we do not because the fact is the law right now is a failure the way it's working. the fact is you have 76,000-some people that have been denied under the present law. only 44 were prosecuted. you're letting them go. they are walking the streets. >> shameless. he's also said previously that schools should be gun-free zones. now he says even in the school should be armed. the man does any u-turn that suits him. yet he's winning this war in washington. why is he winning? why does the nra continue to wield this power? i have a tweet here from ted new gent. ask michael moore this. will you ever admit your "bowling for columbine" lie is a propaganda smear against the good families of the nra and the honorable american legendary e freedom warrior charlton heston. >> ted and i are both from michigan. there is a reason he's called the motor city madman. he's been off his rocker for a long time. i feel bad because he had some good music back in the day. but, listen, the thing here with wayne la pierre who, by the way, i thought
unwanted guns off the streets. critics say it's punishes law abiding gun owners. our question, will raising taxes on gun sales target the wrong people? maria? >> i don't know if this particular legislation will work, carol, but what i like, they are putting everything on the table in terms of trying to solve the issue of gun violence in this country, which is critical. should we focus on this? i don't think raising taxes will keep anybody that wants a gun from buying a gun. we should focus on other things also that have more bipartisan support, like the background checks and focusing on real solutions. i like this continues to be part of the debate. we need to continue to put everything on the table. >> ron. >> the real point of this, we have over a decade of silence about gun issues after al gore was defeated this is a very polarizing idea. i can see some blue states advancing it. very difficult beyond that. >> buzzer beater, 20 seconds on the clock. outrage, indignation, unrest, all because of this. the cool ranch doritos tacos locos, a much anticipated sequel to a menu favorite. customer
-bloomberg law" and amy, the author of a book called "lunch wars." tony, you introduced this so-called anti-bloomberg bill that focuses on limiting restaurant regulations. that includes preventing limits on sugary drink sizes as well as banning any requirements to post calorie counts, even laws about toys in kids meals. what do you see as the government's role, if any, in encountering the obesity crisis that's threatening public health? >> well, thank you for having me this morning. i think it's a far more outreaching than what we're discussing here. it's more about government intrusion into business and putting regulations in place that could be detrimental to their business. the bill that we have passed here in the state of mississippi does not do away with what the fed is already requiring, if you own 20 or more restaurants you still have to plot nutritional values, you to have it on your menus and have it presented for the consumer. our bill is all about protection to the free rights operating business and there again we don't want a hodgepodge of municipalities across our state, coming
. let's listen a little. >> -- no one person gets to decide the law. no one person gets to decide your guilt or innocence. my question -- my question to the president was about more than just killing americans on american soil. my question was about whether presidential power has limits. lincoln put it well when he wrote "nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man, give him power." president obama who seemed once upon a time to respect civil liberties has become the president who signed a law allowing for indefinite detention of an american citizen. indeed a law that allows an american citizen to be sent to guantanamo bay without a trial. now, president obama defends his signing of this bill by stating that he has no intention of detaining an american citizen without a trial. likewise he defended possible drone strikes on americans by indicating that he had no intention of doing so. well, my 13-hour filibuster was a message to the president, good intentions are not enough.
